Joe Morrow: Headed overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow agreed to terms on a contract with Dinamo Minsk (KHL) on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of reports.

Morrow was released by the Devils on Saturday in order to facilitate his move overseas. This very well could mark the end of the blueliner's NHL career, which would see him retire having played in 162 games for Montreal, Winnipeg and Boston. Drafted by the Penguins with the 23rd overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the blueliner never appeared in a game for the club after he was traded to Dallas in exchange for Brenden Morrow and a 2013 third-round pick that would eventually become Jake Guentzel.

Joe Morrow: Slated for release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils have placed Morrow on unconditional waivers, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Morrow signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Devils in early October, but it looks like his stay with the organization won't last the full year. If he goes unclaimed through waivers, Morrow will become a free agent.

Devils' Joe Morrow: Lands one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with New Jersey on Sunday.

After signing his deal, Morrow was placed on waivers in order to move him down to the minors. The defenseman figures to start the year in the AHL, but should be in line for a promotion to the NHL sooner rather than later. In 41 games with the Jets last season, the Edmonton native notched seven points and is unlikely to improve upon that in 2019-20.

Joe Morrow: Let go from PTO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow was released from his professional tryout by the Rangers on Monday.

The addition of Jacob Trouba in the offseason, combined with the emergence of Adam Fox, likely prevented Morrow from earning a contract from the club. The 26-year-old could still find a landing spot, but at this point may have to settle for a minor-league contract or make the move overseas. If the blueliner can't find a new home, he would see his NHL career come to a close having notched nine goals and 23 helpers in 162 contests.

Rangers' Joe Morrow: Secures tryout agreement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow inked a professional tryout agreement with the Rangers on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Morrow logged just 41 games with the Jets last season, in part due to injuries. The 26-year-old blueliner has a decent shot of securing a spot on the 23-man roster, but will need to outperform youngsters Libor Hajek (shoulder) and Anthony DeAngelo (lower body). Even if Morrow can secure a permanent deal, he may need to settle for a two-way contract and spend some time in the minors.

Joe Morrow: Won't receive qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow wasn't tendered a qualifying offer by the Jets and will become a free agent July 1, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Morrow played in just 41 NHL games, in part due to injuries, in which he tallied one goal, six helpers and 40 shots. The defender's lack of offensive production will limit his options in free agency, though he should still be capable of finding a new home.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Playing well since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow has tallied an assist, four hits and one blocked shot in two games back from injury.

Morrow averaged 15:00 of ice time in the last two games, which is over a minute more than his season average. The increased ice time almost certainly comes as a result of continued absences for Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) and Josh Morrissey (upper body). Once the Winnipeg defensive corps gets fully healthy, the veteran Morrow will see his opportunities diminish.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Taken off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

The move clears the way for Morrow to suit up versus Anaheim on Wednesday. The Edmonton native will likely bump Nathan Beaulieu from the lineup, though Sami Niku could also be a candidate for the press box. The 25-year-old Morrow has only cracked the 10-point mark once in his career, so fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him for offensive output.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Skating in non-contact sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) was on the ice for Tuesday's game-day skate in a non-contact jersey, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

The fact that Morrow hasn't been cleared for contact rules him out for Tuesday's clash with San Jose. The defenseman has missed the previous 10 games due to his lower-body issue. On the upside, the Edmonton native is at least skating, but will need to start taking contact before he returns to the lineup, in addition to being activated off injured reserve.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) isn't in the Jets' lineup Sunday against Washington, according to's Tom Gulitti.

Morrow's next chance to crack the lineup comes Tuesday against the Sharks. When he finally gets back in there, the stay-at-home blueliner will look to add to his season totals of one goal and five assists in 39 games played.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Back on ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) skated during Sunday's practice, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

He has missed the last six games and will continue to sit out Sunday versus the Blue Jackets, but Morrow is nearing a return. The Jets could use the depth since Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) is also on injured reserve and Josh Morrissey (upper body) is out until April. Morrow's next step to get into the lineup will be skating without limitations.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Surfaces on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Morrow is looking at a return in early March. His moving to IR allowed the Jets to promote Tucker Poolman from AHL Manitoba with Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) rendered unavailable for Saturday's game against the Senators.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Facing 2-3 week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow will be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks due to a lower-body injury, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

Morrow was limited to just 10:26 of ice time Thursday, likely as a result of his lower-body issue. The injury comes at an especially disappointing time for the blueliner, who had just notched his first goal of the season Tuesday. Even so, Morrow owns only six points on the season, so his absence shouldn't have a large impact in the fantasy realm. A move to injured reserve wouldn't be surprising given the length of his absence.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Scores goal, assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow found the back of the net for the first time this season against the Rangers on Tuesday, while also picking up an assist.

Morrow is a defensively minded player, so any offensive contributions are likely to be infrequent. The 25-year-old has six points on the year and could still struggle to hit the 10-point mark. Given his limited offensive upside, the blueliner is probably not worth a pickup in even the deepest of formats.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Picks up pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow finished with two assists in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

The 26-year-old Morrow, in 28 games this season, has only recorded three assists, with two of those coming Thursday in Nashville. Despite having played well against the Predators, Morrow remains unworthy of regular fantasy consideration.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Morrow was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, which was the first indication that he was likely on the verge of receiving medical clearance. It isn't clear if the 26-year-old blueliner will bump Ben Chiarot or Dmitry Kulikov from the lineup for Friday's game against the Blackhawks, but if not, he should get an opportunity to taste game action soon.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Ditches non-contact sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) was wearing a regular jersey at Tuesday's game-day skate, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Morrow remains on injured reserve and won't be in action against the Blackhawks on Tuesday, but the fact that he has been cleared for contact is certainly a step in the right direction. Once given the green light to play, the Edmonton native will likely have to win his spot in the lineup back from Dmitry Kulikov.

December 10, 2018 02:08 PM
Jets' Joe Morrow: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) will not be in the lineup to face the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Paul Friesen of Winnipeg Sun reports.

Morrow -- who was at practice Monday in a non-contact sweater, per Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press -- will miss his seventh straight outing due to his lower-body issue. Once given the all-clear, the blueliner could struggle to earn back his spot in the lineup now that Dmitry Kulikov is back to 100 percent.

Jets' Joe Morrow: Unavailable Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) will not be in the lineup versus St. Louis on Friday, Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Morrow will miss his fifth straight game due to his lower-body injury. Considering the 25-year-old has zero points in 19 games, his continued absence is unlikely to be noticed by the bulk of fantasy owners. Once cleared to play, the blueliner will likely bump Cameron Schilling from the lineup.

December 1, 2018 01:16 PM
Jets' Joe Morrow: Moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morrow (lower body) was shifted to injured reserve Saturday, Mike Morreale of reports.

This move was made after Morrow proved unfit to participate in Saturday's morning skate preceding a road match with the Devils. American rearguard Cameron Schilling should see consistent playing time in his absence.
